Alum to sign NIU Football book

September 12, 2013

Cover of “NIU Football” by Dan VerdunSports journalist and Northern Illinois University alumnus Dan Verdun—author of “NIU Football,” which tells the story of Huskie football decade by decade—will be at the Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center to sign copies of his book prior to NIU’s home football games on September 21 vs. Eastern Illinois (Huskie Pride Weekend) and October 12 (Homecoming) against Akron.

From the school’s first team, led by coach John L. Keith in 1899, to the most recent squad and its unforgettable trip to the 2013 Orange Bowl, “NIU Football” will dazzle and delight fans of the subject with its irresistible mix of pride and nostalgia.

Lavishly illustrated with photographs from throughout the program’s storied history, and with a foreword by beloved former head coach Joe Novak, Verdun’s book deserves a place in the collection of every football fan ever to sing the Huskie Fight Song.
